it's been a few years since ive had calamari, and that was at a restaurant. since that last time i got diagnosed with a condition that left me to follow a very strict diet. after finding this recipe, i had to tweak it a bit, and im sorry for those of u who don't believe in rating recipes if it's been messed with...but using this as a jump off point i was able to enjoy restaurant quality calamari again! i left the squid rings in the buttermilk overnight to marinate; i didn't have all the ingredients i needed and ended up coating the squid rings in arrowroot starch, no spices except a pinch of cayenne. they still turned out great! a few pieces were tough, but i think that could've been because the squid i had were the huge ones...that and i can only use olive oil due to the dietary cocerns. i thought this would affect the flavour -i really don't prefer the taste of oo- but it didn't! if i could i'd try this to a 't', but for those of u who can, definitely try this one out!
